grammy awards, grammy awards 2022,

Last night, the Recording Academy handed out the trophies during the 64th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony and no, I didn’t manage to watch or even DVR the program. I worked all day and then spent the night rocking out with Dragonforce for the PiercingMetal site. I did cull the winners into the list that you will find below and this time around I’ve decided to leave off the other nominees in most of the categories since the original list was a lengthy and ponderous read. You can compare notes on the Nominations post found HERE if you like. Here now are your winners for the 64th Annual Grammy Awards. Enjoy.
